→ Los Angeles magazine executive editor Mary Melton had a scare on the Santa Monica freeway: her left rear window exploded, spraying safety glass bits over her thankfully unoccupied child seat. Her first thought, this being an L.A. freeway, was that she was under fire. When she tried filing a CHP report, the person on the phone sounded unconcerned and told her to look for the shell casing herself. "I didn't find one and I am hoping that it was a wanton bolt or hubcap that took out the window," she emailed. "Scrounging around on my hands and knees in my backseat on Crenshaw looking for a shell casing amid broken glass...it was a personal low."
